We took a circular route from Knighton around Garth Hill, which included a section of Glyndwr's Way. We found it a little tricky to get onto the footpath from the town as stuff had changed since the walk guide was written. However, once established on the path, there was little difficulty finding our way. We had some views across the... More

One of the few walks in the UK -apart from Scotland- where one can truly believe that you have left civilization behind! The scenery is beautiful with rolling hills. Not too taxing, but plan your stop over's, accommodation not plentiful. A rewarding walk on the wild side, but creature comforts available.

A less trodden path as National Trails go but well worth doing. Highlights include the views of the Severn valley, views of Snowdonia, and the reservoirs

A challenging long distance walk, but although some lovely scenery in parts, there is a lot of tarmac and track. Offas Dyke and Pembrokeshire Coast path both are better. Plenty of hills. Limited places to stay on route, some excellent, some not so.

Loved the walk, but it was a lot tougher than I expected. Over 9 days, only saw two other hikers (who were walking together). Whilst there was the occasional farmer, sheep and cow to say hello to, did cause some concern as whilst generally well sign-posted, if I missed signage, could go off track for 30-40 mins before realising it....

Walked from Knighton to Welshpool in 9 days. We managed to do 141 miles by the time we had made our way to a B&B each night. Surprisingly for mid-Wales we only had 2 spells of rain. It is a good testing walk. Although you rarely get higher than 450 metres, you do spend a lot if time going up... More

I have just walked HALF of Glyndwr's Way, 'in reverse' from Welshpool to Machynlleth so although I cannot review the whole route I feel that I can at least post a review of what I've walked and will update when I complete the total. So far I have walked it with friends in two day-long sections (Welshpool to Meifod and... More

Last Sunday we walked the third section of this challenging route. It goes in a big circle from Knighton to Lanidloes, Machynlleth, Llanbrynmair, Dolanog to Welshpool, where it joins up with Offa's Dyke back down to Knighton. After completing Offa's Dyke from Chepstow to Prestatyn over the last year, we were a bit stumped and suffering from withdrawal symptoms, so... More
